Create HTML and formatting the table in an email

I use 'Create HTML' successfully based on data from a SPand pass the result into an email.  What I would like to do is modify the table result to show borders etc.  Is there a way to do this.  There are no advanced settings I can see for this

OK solved this by adding a second compose "data operations Compose" and used teh following syntax

 

replace(body('Create_HTML_table'),'<table>','<table border="1">')

 

Where 'Create_HTML_table' = the name of the Create HTML compse

 

Basically the replace would allow you to modify anything in the table

Please let us know the inputs need to be populated on Create Html From field ..it should be body  or something else. when i tried body it updated sharepoint link not email

The inputs in most cases for me is the result from a 'select' action step.  The select puts a rows from a list into an array table with column headers etc which you can then use the result to be put into a create html table.  

 

This does not show borders,  hence the need for the replace function
